Event Image "The Time Travel of Migration" (Jess x Chen Workshop)

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

The Time Travel of Migration is an introductory art, poetry and activism workshop designed for migrant youth, or communities of color with diasporic backgrounds. The workshop will examine the ways art merge the distance between homelands and America through the writing of a poem, a love letter, a collaborative mural, the learning of a mother tongue, or the creation of a family portrait. Art will be used to honor the distances traveled and ancestors lost in the process of migration while celebrating the resilience of our own bodies and families that have survived and continue to survive the journey.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Kathleen de Onís
Indiana University-Bloomington

Whether it be in everyday talk, policy discussions, or in scholarly discourse, we all encounter, experience, and expend energy, as this force literally makes our world go ‘round. This presentation studies energy rhetorics and rhetoric as energy by examining how different social movement actors in Puerto Rico and in the US diaspora generate critical interruptions for their own context and beyond in response to what I call “energy coloniality” and “energy privilege.” While the different artifacts and experiences I engage emanate from and in many ways are specific to energy controversies, policies, and movements in Puerto Rico, some of the broader questions they evoke for contemporary times are relevant whether one lives on an island, on a large land mass, or in a rural or urban area. In conversation with energy and Latinx studies, as well as my primary research area of rhetorical studies, I conclude by arguing for rhetoric’s vital role in enabling and constraining more just, sustainable communities, as we individually and collectively (re)consider how we exert our energies and with what effects.
Death, Burial, and the Egyptian Past at Graeco-Roman Abydos
7:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Tom Landvatter
Reed College

Abydos is one of the most important cemetery sites in Egypt, steeped in indigenous Egyptian tradition as the burial site of the first kings of state-level Egypt, as the site of multiple cemeteries in near constant use for 3500 years, and as a major cult center to the god of the dead, Osiris. But what happened to the site at the end of the first millennium BCE, when Egypt was first under the rule the Macedonian Ptolemaic dynasty and then was incorporated into the Roman Empire as a province? Prof. Tom Landvatter of Reed College will present recent research which has revealed much about the site during the Ptolemaic and Roman periods – including the development of the funerary landscape and interactions with earlier, Pharaonic-period remains – important for our understanding of Egyptian society at this time.
